Joe Pride is kicking up for two of his horses to be seriously considered for Everest slots after Eduardo maintained his perfect record for the trainer in the Missile Stakes.
Joe Pride’s recent recruit Eduardo has passed his first test but a bigger challenge awaits when he takes on a rich field in the Missile Stakes at Rosehill.
